Trump says Puerto Rico's debt needs to be wiped out

Despite President Donald Trump's statements about the strong recovery Puerto Rico has made and his declaration that Maria was not "a real catastrophe like Katrina", almost half of the island's 3.4 million people are still without drinking water and 85 percent of the territory is without power.

Local soldiers are helping remove debris and clear routes for supply deliveries in Hurricane Maria-devastated Puerto Rico. The clean-up is continuing, albeit slowly, especially outside of San Juan, but it will likely be months before the island gets back to normal. "This trip demonstrated it, and we need to continue to work together".

The return to higher shipping costs won't help Puerto Rico as it tries to climb out of economic devastation.

There were rumors that Vanessa's professional partner had to be replaced last week because she and Maksim were not getting along. Each couple will perform a jazz, jive, quickstep, Viennese waltz, contemporary, foxtrot or rumba, vying for America's vote.

"With the help of the U.S. Army, we were able to deliver drinkable water to the kids in the orphanage within the hour", Lugo said.

San Juan mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz, now the most well-known critic of Trump's Puerto Rico response, called the president out on Twitter once again after a San Juan hospital lost power. He said his administration had received "really high marks" for their efforts in Louisiana, Florida, and Texas and that the response in Puerto Rico was just as good. I was having fun, they were having fun. Indeed, he appears to not believe the mayor's concern was worth his or the agency's time, telling Raddatz, "We filtered out the mayor a long time ago". He said, "If there is a place, a locality that is not delivering food to the people of Puerto Rico that need it, there's going to be some hell to pay". "Increasingly painful to understand the American people want to help and U.S. Gov does not want to help", she said.

Puerto Rico is still reeling from Hurricane Maria, with the vast majority of the island lacking power 18 days after the storm hit. "And because their children are out of school, we're providing day care", Liana continued. "If FEMA can not source that themselves, we will leverage any asset that foots that bill".
